I'm sorry you had trouble with this car. I bought mine new in 2003, and the first six years were relatively trouble-free. It is now almost eight years old with less than 65,000 miles and I won't drive it out of town because I have the VTI transmission. However, a little bit of research on your part before buying the car would have revealed that the transmission is a major issue, and that a class-action suit was filed against Saturn in 2007. The judgment was in the owners' favor, but now that GM filed bankruptcy they've weaseled out of paying for the repairs on my car. They will cover half now instead of the full costs, but $3800 is more than I want to spend on it. My SES light just came on, and I'm afraid of what the diagnostic will reveal.
